Vince Volpe has been named Associate Athletics Director for Development at Arizona State University.

Volpe makes his way to the Sun Devil Club after spending eight years at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) as the Deputy Director of Athletics and Chief Revenue Officer. With over 20 years of experience focused on fundraising, Volpe has raised over $40 million in support of various institutions, including UTRGV, UConn, Oral Roberts, and the University of Missouri.

“Arizona State University is the most innovative institution in the country and Sun Devil Athletics, the Sun Devil Club, and our loyal donors are critical components,” said Vince Volpe. “I look forward to working with our various constituents and the campus community that supports ASU Athletics to continue to elevate the student-athlete experience.”

“I am excited to be adding another member to our incredible development staff in the Sun Devil Club, especially an individual with as much experience as Vince has at the collegiate level,” said Vice President of University Athletics Ray Anderson. “As we continue to push Sun Devil Athletics to reach new heights focused on enhancing the student-athlete experience, it is imperative that we have team members dialed in on raising funds to support these initiatives.”

“Our aspirations as a Power Five athletic department require us to continue to elevate our philanthropic support from the Sun Devil community in order to reach both the academic and athletic goals we have set out to achieve,” said Scott Nelson, Senior Associate Athletic Director. “I have full confidence that Vince is the right individual to join our incredible Sun Devil Club team that is focused on enhancing the lives of our student-athletes.”
